Construction unearths Scottish burial cist

The remains of an ancient burial cist has been found in Scotland, delaying the construction of a new medical centre.

“Not only did we uncover the remains of an intriguing cairn-like structure, but there were numerous other features, including a grain-drying kiln, an underground stone-lined passage and a burial cist containing a ceramic Beaker vessel.

“The site is currently being excavated by a team of Highland-based archaeologists and the investigation is revealing exciting new discoveries.”
